Abstract—The core of the organizational learning theory was that the organizational learning activities were the source of organizational value creation. The research focus of organizational learning theory was to discuss the socialization process of organizational learning from the perspective of social capital and its specific impact on the performance of organizational knowledge transfer. Previous studies took more attention to the direct and positive effect of social capital on knowledge transfer, promoting effect of organizational learning on knowledge transfer, and the positive impact of social capital on organizational learning. However, they neglected the intermediary role of organizational learning between social capital and knowledge transfer performance. On the basis of current knowledge transfer theory, this article considered financial performance and innovation behavior as indexes to measure the knowledge transfer performance, and proposed a uniform framework to elaborate the relation and influencing mechanism among social capital, organizational learning and knowledge transfer performance.

Index Terms—social capital, organizational learning, knowledge transfe performance
